Hunnic Spears

These spear-armed Huns are ideal against cavalry.

The Huns terrorised the people of Europe during the 4th and 5th centuries AD, striking fear in to the hearts of even the bravest men. Hunnic warriors were some of the finest cavalry of the time, deadly-accurate with their composite bows but also capable of mounting ferocious charges armed with lances. Such was their reputation that many of their contemporaries thought them unrivalled in the saddle. Although, typically, the Romans considered them disorganised savages, the Huns actually used complex tactical manoeuvres in battle, including some particularly devastating feigned retreats. As they had no written language, or none that has yet been discovered, to uncover Hunnic societal customs we are forced to look at them through the oft-unfavourable eyes of their enemies. The Gothic writer Jordanes described them as a "savage race, which dwelt at first in the swamps, a stunted, foul and puny tribe, scarcely human and having no language save one which bore but slight resemblance to human speech".
